Yes, you actually read that right. I was able to finish up a book in the month of December. I am still unsure of a blogging schedule for the new year, but I am thinking 2 posts a week at most. I just don’t have a ton of time to dedicate to it and I’m at the point that I also want to time to live my life. My blog has come a long way, since I first started it five years ago now. Might even be going on 6. The years just kinda blur together. But 2019 holds a big year of changes for me. I’m gonna be moving with March being the earliest, but I start really apartment hunting at the end of Jan/Feb. I’ll have saved enough by then. I’m gonna be on my own for the first time ever with my son, which is both thrilling and terrifying. I am so ready and excited though! I’m gonna start dating again and putting myself out there. I’m gonna start building a life for myself and my son. I can be myself whoever that is, again. So, I really can’t wait for 2019.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
It was a solid end to the series, but I’m still a bit disappointed by it. The first book was great. The second book was still good, but not amazing. The third is just kinda meh to me. This trilogy could have just been a book and a sequel. Half the book was just sitting, hanging around her ex boyfriend’s house being a “hostage”. It could have been so much better. It was a bit of a letdown. I “read” this on audible and I have to say that the narrator was also pretty terrible. I am happy to finally close the door to this series. Maybe, I am just too old for YA books now that I am in my mid to late twenties with a child of my own. I still thought the book was okay, but nothing like the first one. I wish that I would have finished this in my younger years rather than getting around to it now. I probably would have enjoyed it more.

Well, that is the book that I managed to finish reading in December. I think I can get through one or more books in January. I am going to start walking for my hour of lunch. It’s part of a New Years Resolution to get back to the best version of myself. I always felt the best about myself when I was exercising and keeping my body fit. I also loved myself with really long hair, so I’m also focused on growing it out and not bleaching it anymore. I’m only allowing myself to have highlights in the future. I think I’m finally at peace with my dark blonde hair. Plus, with highlights, I can still add fun colors now and again.

Honestly this was never meg cabot’s best series, nor was abandon (at least to me). for YA, 1800, mediator, and princess diaries were the best series. I can’t vouch for the adult series because i still haven’t read them. i have the last two abandon books (i’m reading abandon #2 now), and then i’ve read all the ya books.
I remember enjoying abandon. Lol. Wow. That’s a lot of books!
It’s honestly probably my least favorite thing she’s written. The lead character is fine, but i don’t like the romantic lead and i don’t like them as a couple. he met her as a child and it just feels like a weird concept. did you read all three?
Yes, I read all three of them. I really liked the male lead more than the female lead. It was a little creepy, but I think the Greek myth was the same way.
he’s been really controlling so far. maybe something will change, idk.
Yet again, I was in a controlling relationship when I read them, so whose to really say. lol
yeah that could definitely impact the way you saw things! you were also a little younger which i think makes an impact too. after this series i’ve read all of her children’s and YA titles so i’m ready to move on to the adult ones.
Yay! I have one of her adult books on audio.
i have several of them that i’ve picked up at the salvation army or wherever, i’ve just been holding off on reading them until i finish this series. i finished the second book yesterday so i only have one left.
